Billy Goat Trail

Potomac, MD 8.0 mi away
#1 of 4 Outdoor Activities in Potomac
The Billy Goat Trail is definitely one of the best hikes in the DC area; its a challenging hike, so come prepared with water, athletic gear, and be ready to climb/scramble.
The Billy Goat Trail is a challenging hiking trail in Great Falls Park, more a series of rocks and boulders than a "trail."

While an excellent instructor, I have especially enjoyed David's warm, genuine, and supportive energy--he really is fabulous and you would be lucky to have him work with you as well!
